It is said that every few years, there is what's known as the "Summer of Anu." During that summer, thanks to the divine protection of the sky-god Anu, all of the demons in the tower lose their power. The country of Uruk has begun an invasion of the tower in order to suppress the demons. They've built up positions inside the tower, with their sights set on getting to the upper levels. The Uruk army knows that this is the third Summer of Anu-a perfect time to launch a mission to suppress the monster Druaga once and for all. The army soldiers aren't the only ones in the tower, though. An enitre city called Meskia has formed inside the tower's first floor. It plays host not just to soldiers, but also to adventurers who have heard rumors about a legendary treasure called the Blue Crystal Rod, which is said to rest at the very top of the tower. With all these different groups in the mix, each with its own agenda, one can only guess how things will play out during this unusual summer.

Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk draws its inspiration from a beloved Japanese video game. The narrative follows a band of adventurers as they endeavor to ascend a towering edifice in pursuit of untold treasures, navigating through perilous encounters with monsters and traps strewn throughout its labyrinthine depths.

Set in the aftermath of protagonist Gilgamesh's triumph over the malevolent deity Druaga, now reigning as the King of Uruk, the resurgence of the tower once inhabited by Druaga presents a formidable challenge. Towering even higher than before, it beckons countless adventurers and Urukian soldiers alike, driven by the allure of its fabled riches. Yet, amidst the ...

Mixed Feelings
Well it started out really great! It parodied the whole shounen genre and it was really funny, end of the episode it went 180. It didn't go bad, not really, I still had high hopes though. I thought that since it was aware of the tropes of a shounen then maybe it could break away from them. Too much hope it seems. Well watch the first episode. Everything else is just meh.

If you have watched shounen before, then you've watched this show. Something like Rage of Bahamut is a better fantasy (as bad as the game that show is based on, the anime ...

Starts very good.
The first episode is practically a sarcastic comedy of every "ganbare" type shounen.
The second episode convinces you that in this anime the characters will act as normal people do, and the ganbare type MC is practically just a dumb kid who has to grow up to live in this world. At this point, this anime was very promising, at last something new, something cliché-breaking.
But it betrays you. The longer I watched, the more evident it became that despite the prelude, this really is just one of those fantasy shounens that you can find on every corner.
Boring story if there is any, ...
